The 2017 PokerNews Cup kicks off at the King’s Casino, Rozvadov in only two weeks, meaning the wait to play for a share of a guaranteed €255,000 is almost over.
Despite boasting a large guaranteed prize pool, the 2017 PokerNews Cup only costs €250 to buy into, or even less if you win your way into this exciting event via the satellites being run at 888poker and live at the King’s Casino.
The combination of a big prize pool and small buy in creates an eclectic mix of recreational players and professionals, which in turn leads to an atmosphere rarely found in live tournaments around the world.
Of course, a poker festival wouldn’t be worthy of that name if it didn’t have several side events to offer anyone traveling to it, and the 2017 PokerNews Cup is no different. With 11 different tournaments to get your teeth into, the 2017 PokerNews Cup has something for everyone in case your Main Event quest does not go to plan.
